Sites like RapidShare and MediaFire. What do y'all think of them?

Hate'em or Love'em?

Personally I hate the method they work in (paying for not waiting and throttling quantity and speed) but some content which is very rare (ie. not found in P2P) can be found here.

So what's the verdict?

i'm the same as you. not keen and i refuse to pay a premium for faster d/load speeds. that said, if i want something i'm prepared to wait for a longer d/load and am really grateful for the opportunity of being able to get it. so i refuse to grumble about it.

I for one remember that mediafire used to identify and block Skipscreen. That really got me angry >_<.

But mediafire is also good because if it is a video file you can normally watch it in their media player Smile.

Get jdownloader - it takes care of waiting time, queuing and (most) captchas - copy (multiple) link(s) and paste it into the program and let it run till its done - an eight part movie hosted on rapidshare might take a day to download because of the waiting time involved, but you wont be bothered by multiple clicking/waiting and 'get a premium membeship now' spam.

Also if you manage to get your hands on something delicious that is not already available via torrenting, dont hestitate to torrent it plox Smile
sounds like one to try out.

thanks moobs. good to see you posting Smile

But most things can be found on torrent thankfully :angel:

First time you use jdownloader it's all a bit confusing but you soon get used Smile (had used it before)
no the very rare and old movies can be found on public domain torrents site
